Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Calendula Flowers, Beeswax.
Organic Sweet Almond Oil is infused for 6 weeks with Calendula flowers grown and harvested in my own small garden in North London. It is then blended with just enough carefully sourced British Beeswax to create a soft, solid balm for easy application.
Use: Carry in your pocket or purse for those dry skin emergency moments. Sweet Almond Oil is wonderfully nourishing for the skin, and the calendula adds a wonderfully soothing quality – perfect for minor burns, insect bites and scrapes, as well as helping to calm minor skin ailments such as rosacea and eczema. Just apply a small amount to the area that needs looking after, and let this golden wonder do its work. Fast absorption means you won’t leave oily hand marks all over the place as well, bonus. Works wonderfully as a lip balm or hand cream.
Always do a bit of your own research or talk to an expert before using for medical purposes.
Important Note: Dark Times Apothecary offerings are small tokens to help you feel like you have some control, or power in these times where lets be honest – none of us feel like we do. They are intented to help you feel less lost, less alone – more grounded and focussed in your own life, time, situation. These are not intented to replace actual healthcare (I am not currently a trained professional), they are intented to be coping mechanisms to help you get through the day. Also they smell nice.
About Us: All Dark Times Apothecary products are made in very small batches from herbs grown, foraged or carefully selected by me, Dianne Tanner. My knowledge comes from extensive learning and research, or was handed down to me through my family and upbringing in rural New Zealand (via ancestors in England and Scotland). I follow a loose Pagan-Witch path, learning with the seasons and finding things that help me cope with the ever-increasingly difficult times we live in. These are the offerings I am sharing here with you, in the hope that they give you some tools to cope as well. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
